Chomsky on “world order”

Noam Chomsky is my hero. I challenge anyone to give me some really good reasons to think otherwise.

Really - I’d be willing to hear them.

Besides… the man getting old. I may cry when he dies. And then… there will be a gigantic void in my life that I’m afraid I’ll never fill :(

Solidarity, people’s of the world
